I'm a stay at home mom to the two most adorable girls in the world and wife to my favorite computer geek. I am rapidly passing thirty and still waiting for some small amount of wisdom that is supposed to come with age. Maybe another 30 years will do it.
This is another of my favorite children's books that we stumbled upon in our library a while back. It's a story about a family in the Appalachian Mountains and the Pack Horse Librarian that dutifully comes to bring them books.
This is such a great story. Not only does it talk about how wonderful books are and how much we can learn from them, but it also includes details about a little known part of American history that included the Pack Horse Librarians. When I read this to my girls, I got all teary and how devoted this woman was and what a difference she made in the lives of that family. Yes, I'm that sappy. But it's a good book, so read it anyway!
A womans worth is not defined by the cleanliness of her kitchen!
"We have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove anything, to be what we are." Marjorie Pay Hinckley
So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life's a great balancing act. Dr. Suess
